    Pros

    Pay is the only pro i can think of

    Cons

    Poor work environment, jumping to conclusions without finding the facts first

    Advice to Management

    stop brow beating - start leading, all the charts, graphs, metrics, are for nothing if no action is taken, listen, ask or include those who interface between the floor and the office.

    Pros

    Fair place to work when the union is not causing problems and misleading the workforce. The company is really trying to work with the people but employees that have been there awhile are stirring the pot and making matters horrible..

    Cons

    Lots of hours. Need to update the bathrooms on the floor. Union is more of a distraction than helping. Need to fix some of the ac units please....

    Advice to Management

    Keep having the monthly meetings. The majority of the people appreciate what the management group is trying to do in Shelbyville.

    I have been working at Martinrea International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people at the grass roots level who want to do a good job for the customer. I enjoy my coworkers and the work is enough of a challenge to keep you from being bored.

    Cons

    Revolving door of management. Many are in positions way above their skills set at the corporate level. They either used to work with somebody somewhere else and flamed out there/were fired (this describes almost everyone at corporate) or they are kin to somebody and were given their job. 1950's management style with lots of cussing and public berating in front of peers. Reputation for quality and delivery is so poor in the industry that the OEMs can get them to take business at a loss because they are so desperate to try and hang on. And that's only when they are not on new business hold.

    Advice to Management

    Do the noble thing and step down.

    Pros

    Friendly, smart people dedicated to providing quality service. Everyone is extremely helpful and hardworking. Good communication is heavily stressed. Overall, an enjoyable place to work.

    Cons

    Management needs improvement. Not necessarily new people, but potentially more people. Reevaluation of roles may be necessary for Martinrea to reach the next level.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive attitudes and encouraging words. Make sure management at every level is properly guiding and teaching their employees, and giving them the opportunity to reach the next level in their career.
